Henri Matisse Inspired Goldfish Collage

Students look at Henri Matisse's painting "Goldfish". Students create their own version using a collage process. Begin by designing a patterned background. Cut and glue an oval table top and some table legs beneath it towards the bottom of the paper. Cut out cylinder shape from blue textured paper and glue on table. Add flowers and leaves in the background. Use orange paper to create some goldfish to put in the cylinder. Remind students of proper ways to use glue- demonstrate how to apply glue to paper in small amounts. Use oil pastels to add more details.
